What Are CCTV Drain Cameras?

A closed-circuit television (CCTV) drain camera or plumbing camera is a diagnostic device we use to get accurate, real-time visual data of a plumbing or drainage system.

With a drain inspection camera, we can conduct a proper, thorough inspection of your system without any digging or excavation required.

A plumbing camera comprises the following parts:

  • Waterproof Camera - As the primary component of a CCTV drain camera, this special camera is impenetrable to water and not susceptible to water damage. 

  • Access Rods - These are flexible rods connected to plumbing cameras and necessary for camera navigation.

  • Remote-Controlled Crawlers - These parts allow users to control the movement of the cameras inside drainage pipes.

  • Sondes Units - While a drain inspection camera can provide visual information, sondes units provide accurate locations of the issue and depths inside the drain pipe. 

  • High-Intensity Lights - These lights provide the superior illumination necessary to get a clear visual of the plumbing or drain system.

Why Would You Need to Get a Drain Inspected?

Every household needs a well-maintained drainage system. Therefore, it’s important that you take the necessary steps to ensure your system is in tip-top condition. You need to be vigilant about signs of wear and tear or as most major drainage problems start out as simple and small issues. 

If these small issues aren’t addressed immediately, they could get worse as time goes by and could turn into very costly repairs or a replacement project. To keep your drains in excellent condition, we recommend that you get your property drains inspected every three to five years to minimise the amount of times the repair process is required.

The problem, of course, is that most property owners don’t follow this advice and usually wait for issues to get worse before they report them. Avoid making this mistake by calling Tunnel Vision as soon as you notice something is amiss.

What Are Some Common Drainage Issues?

Common drainage issues you need to watch out for include:

These problems don’t usually occur overnight and there are often underlying reasons as to why you might not have noticed. If such problems are detected early on, we can help save you money and from a lot of stress - which is precisely why regular drain inspections are crucial.

Frequently Asked Questions - CCTV Drain Inspection Cameras

Does the CCTV Drain Inspection Include a Copy of the Video Footage?

Tunnel Vision provides CCTV camera footage to clients on request. Speak to one of our friendly staff and let them know you would like a copy and we’ll email the video via a dropbox link. Or if you require a copy straight away, we can record the video to a separate USB for a nominal charge. For an example of how this footage will appear, view our Commonwealth Bank of Australia Building case study.

Does the CCTV Drain Inspection Also Include a Written Report?

Yes. When using our iBak Mainline Tractor system, we can provide an in-depth Wincan V8 Drainage Software report and video recording of the internal condition of the drain. This reporting software is approved and used by many councils, water authorities and civil contractors on practical completion of any new drainage jobs and applied to larger commercial projects and drains.

How Far Can CCTV Drainage Cameras Go?

Tunnel Vision has many different types of drainage cameras that allow us to inspect pipes of all sizes. Our CCTV push drain cameras can inspect up to 80m - 100m from an access point and our crawler CCTV camera can inspect up to 250m in one go.

Does Tunnel Vision Service All Perth Suburbs?

What Payment Options Does Tunnel Vision Have Available?

We can take payment via EFT, credit card, cash or cheque. Tunnel Vision usually asks for a deposit following making a quote, and you make the final payment on completion of the works. Bookings can be made easily online using our online booking form.

Do I Have to Be On-Site When You Attend to My Property?

While we always like for you to be there, if we have access to the drainage system from outside we can usually clear a drain blockage without you being home. The only thing we can’t do without you there is run your plumbing fixtures from inside the house and you may be left with some debris in the drains internally from when the drains backed up.

You can solve this by running your taps and fixtures to flush through any loose build up that may be sitting in the line after your blockage has been cleared. If you are home, we will do this for you.
